Former WWE Superstar Kickstarts Acting Career With Big Movie Role

Former WWE superstar Cameron, whose real name is Ariane Andrew, has announced that she'll be featured in a movie titled Underdog.

The movie is about a young girl who meets a boxing coach and they form a bond through their personal addictions.

Cameron's wrestling career started in 2011 with WWE's Tough Enough, after taking part in a non-televised diva search. It didn't work out too well for her though as she ended up being one of the first people eliminated from the competition.

She then signed a contract with WWE and was assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling in order to help her develop and hone her skills in the ring.

Then Cameron made her WWE  Raw brand debut in January of 2012 as one of the dancers and valets alongside Naomi for Brodus Clay. Andrew formed a tag-team called The Funkadactyis along with Naomi, which lasted until 2014.

From 2014 to 2016, Andrew wrestled by herself but stopped in February 2016 after losing an NXT match to Alexa Bliss. This led WWE to release her from her contract in May 2016.


While the 30-year-old Andrew never won a championship during her time with WWE, she won a Slammy Award for Best Dance Moves in 2013.

When it comes to her work outside of the ring, Andrew was a part of the reality show Total Divas, which is produced by WWE and E! back in July 2013 but she wasn't a full-time member by 2015.

Most recently, Andrew was on MTV's The Challenge Champs vs. Stars.

During a recent interview, Andrew talked about how being on The Challenge really tested her mentally. She said her favorite part was the fact that she was playing in an effort to raise money for charity. The charity that Andrew's supports is Black Girls Rock, which helps young black girls have confidence in themselves by working with them through camps and other means.

"The Challenge is exactly what it’s called, which is a challenge. The challenges are complex, but for me I believe the ultimate challenge is keeping your mental stability," she shared. "Don’t get yourself caught in a straight jacket. I don’t want to give too much away but I will say that for one of the first times ever, I learned how to 'play the game.'" However, there were plenty of positive moments for Ariane during the season. "My favorite part was competing for charity. Trying to be taken as a serious actress given my background from wrestling and Total Divas, being on another reality show was a tough call for me to make," she continued. "Since philanthropy is something dear to my heart when I was presented with the opportunity to participate on the show, I was excited to potentially have my charity win $150,000."

It looks like Andrew is done with wrestling now that her career as an actor has taken off a little. Hopefully, this new movie will help her get more roles going forward.
